Violence and Suicide Risk Assessment in Youth with Psychotic Disorders: Practical Considerations for Community Clinicians

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Psychosis is a unique and significant risk factor associated with violent and suicidal behavior and warrants special consideration. This article presents a careful review of the literature on violence risk and psychosis and suicide risk and psychosis as it pertains to youth or those who have been newly diagnosed with or are at high risk for psychotic disorders. Each topic is covered in reference to general considerations and specific psychotic symptoms (eg, hallucinations, delusions, paranoia). The reader can refer to practical boxes to assist in identifying relevant risk factors and examples of questions to ask the patient and family.
